2018 Team Strengths:

  • Arms on the mound

Coach Outlook: Conference play is going to be tough every night but if we can continue to grow, we can compete for a league title and make a run in the tournament. 

PBR Outlook: The Watkins Memorial Warriors and head coach Donald Schone look to be competitive all year in the tough Licking County League. Many arms return for the Warriors which should help all year.
